Canada Soccer is extremely disappointed with the announcement that the Ottawa Fury FC will suspend operations. As the national governing body for the sport of soccer in Canada, we have always supported the growth and development of all levels of soccer, including the professional game in our country with Canada Soccer having provided cross border sanctioning to Ottawa Fury FC in 2018 and 2019 for the subsequent seasons.

In respect of international protocols for sanctioning, Canada Soccer provides approval through its Board of Directors on an annual basis for sanctioning of the participation of all Canadian soccer clubs in cross border leagues. In 2019, Canada Soccer has brought forward to US Soccer and Concacaf a request for the sanctioning of 13 teams across six leagues, including the Ottawa Fury FC in the USL, to compete for the 2020 season.

Ottawa Fury FC were informed of the approval by Canada Soccer’s Board of Directors on 17 May and that the next steps in the process would continue in accordance with Concacaf timelines. As recent as 7 November, Canada Soccer continued to work through the subsequent approval process with US Soccer and Concacaf to facilitate a decision being made by the other governing bodies.

Canada Soccer today confirmed that, following the first leg of the Canadian Premier League Final between Hamilton’s Forge FC and Calgary’s Cavalry FC on Saturday 26 October 2019 in Hamilton, an intention to claim for wrongful dismissal was received in respect of Tristan Borges of Forge FC and Joel Waterman of Cavalry FC who both received red cards during the match. The Canada Soccer Discipline Committee will review the claims upon receipt and make its determination prior to the second leg to be played in Calgary on 2 November 2019.

Following the York9 FC v Cavalry FC Canadian Premier League match on Saturday 28 September 2019, Canada Soccer’s Disciplinary Committee announced that Cavalry Head Coach Tommy Wheeldon Jr. and midfielder Nikolas Ledgerwood of Cavalry FC and goalkeeper coach Camilo Benzi of York9 FC were charged with misconduct in accordance with the Canada Soccer Disciplinary Code.

Wheeldon Jr. and Ledgerwood have been fined undisclosed amounts after the Committee concluded that post-match comments made to the media amounted to Improper Conduct in that they questioned the integrity of the match official and/or brought the game into disrepute.

The Canada Soccer Disciplinary Committee has additionally suspended Benzi for three (3) matches following his irresponsible behaviour displayed as an Occupant of the Technical Area and his conduct after being dismissed from the technical area by the referee. Benzi has also been fined an undisclosed amount.
